but I mean if you aren't going to abandon the C2S paradigm why not use the AP C2S part of the spec
@cwebber mastodon and pleroma aren't doing it so there are no clients for it. i plan to implement it but priority's low (very)
@valerauko It sounds like maybe this is changing based on https://pleroma.site/objects/d636b506-07bf-49ec-beb9-8dbd69a7d17a but I don't know details
@cwebber that would be awesome.
These days people don't design for the future, they just want a working thing for the next day
I got my daughter to say, "Capt. Obvious, what is your superpower?" once and it's become a running joke. My superpower is answering rhetorical questions
In this case, the ecosystem is being driven by server developers who want their efforts centered in the application, so they build in protocols for thin clients
I think we'll have AP C2S with thick client designs and general purpose servers intended for self hosting, blurring the line between federation and p2p
